A suicide attacker detonated a bomb in a parking area at the international airport that serves Pakistan's capital, seriously wounding at least one security official, officials said. The security official stopped the bomber, who was on foot, said Muhammad Farooq, a police official at the central control room in Rawalpindi, where the airport is located. After a brief exchange of fire, the attacker detonated the bomb, he said. Interior Minister Aftab Khan Sherpao confirmed it was a suicide bombing and that one security official was seriously wounded. He had no further details.
